Vintage Kids on a Sled Christmas Card

A while back I had purchased the PDF vintage image of the kids on a sled.  My plan was to make Christmas cards with it.  I did print some out for a friend for her birthday and she brought them with yesterday when she came to my home to stamp. I helped her with the card and this is what she ended up with.  I think I got the image on Etsy.  

The base of the card is Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Cajun Craze card stock that was textured with the "Falling Snow" embossing folder.

The "Merry Christmas" frame is "Simon Says Stamp" (SSS111393).  I bought this last year because it has the most cutest little snowflake in a small frame.  But as it turns out, it got used today on this card.  The die cut was used on a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper.  That stuff is very tough to cut with this die.

Behind the word "Christmas" is a strip of Night of Navy. The panel was taped to the image and then the image was trimmed.  The piece was then set in place using Dimensionals.

A little spring die cut from some Dazzling Diamonds paper, was set in place below the image panel.

And that was it.  A pretty simple card to make.  Though a reasonable amount of time was spent cleaning out the word "Christmas" because of it not cutting very well.  

I love this image and I think I'm going to have to try some things with it to see if I should use it for our annual Christmas card.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
